. msnbc's election command center for the main event, which is now just thee days away. joining me today to prognosticate on these next 72 hours, radio host of studio -- radio host of studio 360 and author of "true believers" kurt anderson. heather mcgee, rolling stone executive editor eric bates, and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart of the "washington post." it is a triumphant moment for everyone, even though no one has actually within won yet be. you can feel the excitement in the air, kurt. we play a little bit of sound from the candidates in the last 24 hours. everybody is making their final pitches. however, given the week that we have just had, it seems like mitt romney has more of an uphill climb that perhaps he even thought he would at this point in the race. i will call to your attention a tweet from rupert murdoch who tweets now christie, while thanking o., must redeclare for romney or take blame for next four dire years. >> which to me is the kind of hysteria on that side that oh my god, i mean i get the interim republican problem with chris christie appearing like a ration
to abolish fema. one week before election day and 800-mile wide hurricane is bearing down on 60 million people across a dozens states. the damage may be upwards of $18 billion and could produce life-threatening conditions. it's taken the lives of 65 people as it powered through the caribbean. the october surprise is here in a time of crisis voters must determine whether they want governor romney at the helm and if he there is what kind of relief will be on offer. the paradox of the mittens, obfuscation and adjusted policy continues. lawrence? >> excuse me. i'm doing a note to self about use that romney video tonight. >> please do, my friend. >> if the power is still on in this building and we're still doing -- >> please do. if that old video archive is still up an running. >> that's good. what you call on point. >> yes. >> for this particular news cycle. >> it is. john king interrupts him and says even for disaster relief and he continues on saying it's immoral and makes no sense. >> that's the wonderful version of ideological consistency that occasionally erupts in republican primaries
the election so everyone is paying a lot more attention to this one than maybe ever before. but yeah this is how the bls does its work. part of the confusion we saw last time when you had the head-scratching moment of people saying wait a second how come the unemployment rate has dropped so much. a lot of misinformation and misunderstanding about how the bls calculates these numbers and that's part of why people who are new come and say that doesn't make sense on its face. >> it's interesting, ben, we were talking last time these numbers came out, a few conspiracy theorists who took to twitter to talk about how bls is a front socialist front for the obama re-elect campaign. it's weird that a socialist front for the obama campaign would be so off in their numbers prior months. if you unpack the numbers, what's interesting is, in different sectors there is something for everyone. professional business services and increase of 51,000 jobs, health care 31,000, retail, 36,000, except for government, which is a decrease of 13,000 jobs. >> right. >> of course the republicans have been bangi
this to be our coverage in the week leading up to the election. >> we did not. it is, i guess, the october surprise. and mitt romney, who we just saw at some campaign event has chosen to continue with his traditional as if nothing else has happened, nothing has changed. i was slightly taken aback by that. i don't know, joy is indicate something agreement. >> it's funny. steve kornacki was saying he thought romney would keep campaigning and the conventional wisdom was that's never going to happen. but i agree with you, martin, hearing him say bring your donation to our victory center and before that still campaigning yesterday, saying people, hey, early vote is still happening. >> an hour ago they were campaigning. >> it was billed by the romney campaign as a storm relief event but happening in ohio, as we have just reported the bulk of the damage is not in ohio, although ohio may be touched by this. i thought, richard, you know, we talked about this being time for a national unity. chris christie yesterday, one of romney's chief surrogates, someone who has been vocal in his support for the
's at stake in this election. now, change in the future where we reduce our deficit that's balanced and responsible. i signed a trillion dollars worth of spending cuts. i intend to do more. i'll work with both parties to streamline agencies and get rid of programs that don't work. if we're serious about the deficit, we've also got to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office because, as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow the nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. and i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a common sense
